Faculty of Science and Health

Explore the research and teaching activities taking place across the 8 schools and departments in our Faculty of Science and Health

The Faculty of Science and Health is the University's largest faculty, and offers courses in environmental, health, and life sciences. We support these courses by offering an excellent research and innovation base and with our professional and clinical practice.

We work in strategic partnership with Portsmouth Hospitals NHS Trust (PHT), which aims to make both the Trust and the University centres of excellence for collaborative education, training and innovation.

By supporting new capacity, projects and infrastructure, the partnership will also enable us to deliver excellent research that's relevant to local people – with a particular focus on the development and application of new healthcare technologies.

We also work in partnership with many other businesses and organisations – from Adidas to the Ministry of Defence – and our graduates have gone on to pursue successful careers across many industries.

Academics, clinicians and practitioners work together to provide a rich learning experience for our students. Our courses reflect this by allowing our students to learn through a variety of methods – mixing practical, research and theoretical content alongside direct experiences, such as work placements, experimentation or simulations.

Our students also enjoy a shared working and learning environment that reflects the workplaces they will encounter when they graduate. Students participate in our innovation and research work, and build networks through these experiences.

More than 60% of our research is world leading or internationally excellent (Research Excellence Framework 2014) and it delivers beneficial social, environmental or economic impact – like our research into developing environmental management tools to help the Ukraine better manage the Chernobyl exclusion zone.
